As we ring in the new year, we proudly welcome stunning new modern kitchen trends now hitting the luxury home landscape. This year at Phil Kean Kitchens, nothing excites us more than focusing our efforts on the concept of charming transitional kitchens, or rather, kitchens that place functionality, luxury, and ingenuity at the core of their design plan.
Transitional kitchens are hard to pin down—but that’s part of their genius. This modern kitchen trend is focused on several vital pieces of the kitchen design puzzle. A kitchen in a luxury home is modern, it’s sleek, it’s functional, and it’s eclectic.
Kitchen design this decade will focus on a myriad of new trends—mixing materials, creating functional and unique spaces, optimizing appliances, and utilizing space in new, intentional, and innovative ways. Below are a few of the most prominent kitchen designs that you, as a luxury homeowner, should be aware of in this new year.
Workspaces In The Kitchen
When you think of a luxury kitchen, your mind probably wanders to backsplashes, the appliances, the cabinets and an overall modern kitchen layout. It’s highly likely that you aren’t immediately going to associate modern, innovative workplaces within the kitchen. But this decade, that’s what a luxurious kitchen centers around. Modern kitchens will consider how walkways and doorways and overall layout will affect and shape optimal workflow within the kitchen environment. Think open spaces, smart uses of the square feet that make up the room, and minimalistic innovations that don’t just express your personal taste of luxury, but also put a modern twist on a beloved room that’s so much more than a place to prepare food.
More Modern Kitchen Layouts
The kitchen is, undoubtedly, the core of the home. It’s the heartbeat of your entire household, a place where the family gathers, a room that’s punctuated with daily routines, chores and more. It’s only natural that a modern, 2020 kitchen layout will emphasize a focus on optimal space utilization and a layout that makes room for the best possible flow for your daily life. Kitchen layouts this year will unmistakably focus on large, open areas; integrated appliances within cabinets and countertops; expertly placed lighting; and more usable space than ever.
A luxury kitchen in this new year will focus on design, functionality and energy efficiency—and of course, this applies to the appliances that are integral to a kitchen’s everyday function. A primary characteristic of a transitional, 2020-trending luxury kitchen will be its ability to seamlessly integrate the appliances into the design. By this, we mean flawless fit, sleek lines, and more than anything, an exquisite and inconspicuous presence of your appliances built-in to your modern kitchen.
In conclusion, as we begin this new decade of style, architecture and the latest trends in kitchen design, a modern, luxury kitchen will gravitate toward a multi-functional, purposeful design that optimizes functionality and ingenuity, all while creating a space you and your family will want to spend time enjoying.
At Phil Kean Kitchens, our priority is to help you mindfully craft a luxury modern kitchen space that expresses your unique style and taste – to elevate, inspire, and bring your home to new heights.
